Wall-2-Wall Triathlon Results Given

The first triathlon on St. Croix was The Wall-2-Wall Triathlon. Under near-perfect racing conditions, 21 men competed in the event, along with six women as well as eight relay teams. Three athletes competed in the shorter-distance Try-a-Tri race.
Dedrick Luikens was the overall individual and 30-39 age group winner with a time of 1:20:10 (2 minutes faster than his last year’s time). Sissel Holloway, just days before heading off to Auckland, New Zealand, for the World’s Age Group Championship race, grabbed the gold for the women’s division with a time of 1:23:24.
The race started off with a highly competitive swim field, mixed with age-groupers and relay teams. The first to exit the 800-meter swim was relay member Alex Lewit. His team, along with David Parris on the bike and Randall Nielson on the run, won the overall race with a time of 1:15:56. Troy Holloway, winner of the 40-49 category, posted the fastest bike split of the morning, just ahead of the 50+ category winner, Scott Fricks. It was no surprise that Billy Bohlke, 2nd place in the 30-39 group, had the fastest time on the 3-mile run.
Lukata Samuel, 16-year-old star athlete, came over from St. Thomas to join the race. John Salo won the 20-29 division, recording very solid times in all three disciplines.
In the small field of women was Theresa Harper in the 40-49 category. Sarah Stamper won the 30-39 category and Carol Fricks won the next category.
After winning the Try-a-Tri race, Frank Pugliese dashed off to prepare breakfast for many of us at Eat@CaneBay. Dominic Pugliese, an 11yr old student at CDS, took second place. Linda Nelson was third.
After the race, the VITF presented awards to the top finishers in the 2011-2012 Individual Point series. Congratulations to: 1st Place – Tyler Jowaisas/Theresa Harper, 2nd Place – Troy Holloway/Laura Hood, 3rd Place – Kellen Hood/Carol Fricks, 4th Place – Dedrick Luikens/Dulcie Crowther, 5th Place – John Salo/Jen Andrews. The 2012-2013 series began today. Follow it on the Web site: http://vitf.org
The next race is the October Surprise Triathlon on Oct 28. The venue has been changed to Frederiksted to the famous West Is Best course. Dare you to wear a costume.
